I am making my in-law's 40th anniversary cake, and I want to use WASC. However, I am having a hard time figureing out how much batter to make. I am making a 12", 10" and 8" cakes all two 2" layers. It wouldn't be as difficult to figure out how much to make, but my MIL wants both chocolate and white cake. So, I think I'll make the 12" one flavor and the 10 and 8" cakes the other.
How many batches will I need to make the 12" cakes? in the recipe it says that one batch (using 2 cake mix boxes) will not yield 2 12" cakes. Also, how many will I need to make the 10 and 8 inch cakes?
Thanks for any insight you can provide!
This website is a good reference for how much batter is needed for each cake pan.
A single cake mix Wasc makes just under 7 cups of batter if you use the Duncan Hines 18.25 oz box mix. However lots of brands have changed their mix to a little over 15 oz which reduces the yield. That chart should get you started though.
On another note, I find their buttercream estimates to be way too low.
I use a single batch of WASC for an 8", batch & a half for a 10", double batch for a 12". Hth!
